Giovanni’s Brick Oven Pizza Opens at Minnechaug!
Open to All (non-golfers included!)
Giovanni’s Brick Oven Pizza, a popular downtown restaurant, recently opened its second location at the Town-owned Minnechaug Golf Course. Giovanni's Owner, Gary Delbon, just executed a multi-year lease with the Town and finished a complete interior renovation. Gary says, “We’re excited to be here and we’re looking forward to having our customers visit the new location.” While the restaurant supports the golf course, it’s not just for golfers. Giovanni’s offers dine in and take out service and is looking to expand its catering business. The restaurant at Minnechaug is also a great space for meetings, birthday parties, and sports team gatherings.
Located at 16 Fairway Crossing at the intersection with Manchester Rd., the restaurant offers the same great pizza and salads as the Hebron Ave. location, but, has a slightly different menu. Open for lunch and dinner seven days/week, happy hour specials are available Monday-Friday 3-5 p.m. The elevated deck overlooking the first hole is a great spot for those who enjoy eating outdoors.
Restaurant Manager, Madison Whately, reports, “The response from the neighborhood has been great! Our complete menu is available online and the number to call for take-out is (860) 791-2133. It’s been great to have our regulars visit the new location. The staff is also really enjoying meeting new folks who we haven’t seen before.”
The restaurant will be open year round and looks forward to serving customers at the new location. The restaurant’s Fall/Winter hours are Monday-Thursday 3-10p.m., Friday & Saturday 11 a.m.-11 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
Ray Purtell, Director of Glastonbury Parks & Recreation, added, “We’re really excited about having Giovanni’s at Minnechaug. They’re a successful local business that has really good food and an established following. Feedback from golfers has been very positive. There aren't a lot of restaurant options in the eastern end of town and I expect that they’ll do very well. We wish Gary Delbon and his staff the very best!”
